Considering this, “combination of AOKs” could signify the usage of a knowledge from an AOK to produce knowledge or aid understanding of other AOKs. Furthermore, the term “most useful” suggests that—compared to other methods of utilizing AOKs—the combination of AOKs is the most beneficial for individuals and society, aiding with either the production of the knowledge (by providing direction of investigation) or the reception of knowledge (by making the full understanding easier for the receptor). With that being said, I believe that the combination of the AOKs provide access to knowledge outside the particular AOK that enables diverse interpretations and perspectives, which often leads to the generation of new knowledge and easier understanding of existing knowledge.

When two AOKs are combined through the usage of the knowledge in one AOK for another, it provide access to more diverse perspectives and interpretations that are not possible with using an AOK alone. Therefore, one AOK becoming “lenses” for another, making AOKs most useful in combination…
